hi guys, i am interested in pairing my Aorus Gaming Box 1080 to a Samsung Odyssey HMD virtual reality headset but wonder if this works out of the box? I use this machine in combination with a MacBook pro 13.3” so I am afraid of running into trouble in boot camp.

There is not a lot of information about VR/WMR on eGPU and the information that I can find is not very positive... anyone who has a confirmed werking setup?

But was that on a Mac in Boot Camp?

Oculus Rift/Aorus Gaming Box 1080 is working flawlessly on my 2017 MBP boot camp.

I have a Macbook Pro 15" 2013, Oculus Rift, Sonnet 350 with a Radeon RX 580. Works great with my VR setup. All I did was do the patch for the AMD gpu for my mac side. Then in bootcamp it was basically plug and play except I had to install the driver for the RX 580. But everything works well for me.

Macbook Pro 15" (Late 2013) > Sonnet 350 Developer > TB2-TB3 > > RX580 > MacOS 10.13.6 + Win10 (Plug and Play)
Macbook Pro 15" (Late 2013) > Sonnet 550 > TB2-TB3 > MacOS 10.13.6 (Need help with Win10)
Testing Soon: Macbook Pro 15" (Late 2013) > Akito Node T3 > TB2-TB3 > ?

Which hub does you use for all the usb cables? 
Would love to buy the Oculus headset but I fear for usb sensor connection issues.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I'm running the Odyssey under Boot camp with my rig - no problems at all. Elite Dangerous is awesome with it…
